Robert Pattinson on the movie, speaking to Ryan Seacrest:
“It’s sort of a big beautiful old-fashioned love story . . . set in the ‘30s . . . me and Reese Witherspoon playing lovers, it’s very sweet,” he elaborated. One of the interesting stories coming off of his work on the film has been his strong working relationship with and respect for the movie’s elephant, Tai, which portrays “Rosie,” an important and influential circus creature.
“It’s completely amazing . . . working with kids or elephants . . . they’re the most kind of sophisticated, gentle creatures you could hope to work with. I mean right from the very first day . . . when I met Tai who plays Rosie in the movie . . . she was with five or six other elephants, and it is kind of intimidating in the beginning, especially when they’re standing on their back legs. . . I got carried around in her mouth and stuff . . . and you suddenly realize how incredible they are,” he said.
